Volatile organic compounds (VOCs) are contained in a variety of chemicals that can be found in household products and may have undesirable effects on health. Thereby, it is important to model blood-to-liver partition coefficients (log P(liver)) for VOCs in a fast and inexpensive way. In this paper, we present two new quantitative structure-property(More)
BACKGROUND The design of QSAR/QSPR models is a challenging problem, where the selection of the most relevant descriptors constitutes a key step of the process. Several feature selection methods that address this step are concentrated on statistical associations among descriptors and target properties, whereas the chemical knowledge is left out of the(More)
Quantitative structure-activity relationship modeling using machine learning techniques constitutes a complex computational problem, where the identification of the most informative molecular descriptors for predicting a specific target property plays a critical role. Two main general approaches can be used for this modeling procedure: feature selection and(More)
New descriptors of main and side chains for polymers with high molecular weight are presented in order to predict the glass-transition temperature (T(g)) by means of T(g)/M ratio. They were obtained by molecular modeling for the middle unit in a series of three repeating units (trimer). Taken together with other classic descriptors calculated for the entire(More)
Several feature extraction approaches for QSPR modelling in Cheminformatics are discussed in this paper. In particular, this work is focused on the use of these strategies for predicting mechanical properties, which are relevant for the design of polymeric materials. The methodology analysed in this study employs a feature learning method that uses a(More)
